Neiden is a fascinating small village situated near the Finnish border approx. 45 km from Kirkenes. The people in Neiden have their history and origin from Skoltesami. Neiden, which lies along the Neiden River, consists of two villages: Neiden on the Norwegian side and Näätämö on the Finnish side.
If you visit during the summer, we recommend stopping at the Skoltefossen waterfall below the E6 in the middle of the village. Other attractions in Neiden include the Ä’vv Skolt Sami Museum and several interesting church buildings, including the St. Georg’s Russian Orthodox chapel (built 1565).
